Healthy Puppy Intake Form
We are excited to be rolling out WELLNESS PACKAGES this year! These wellness packages contain all the recommended care for your pet and allow you to prioritize and choose between the basic necessary care for your pet, or the gold packages which include additional recommended services for your puppy.
INCLUDED IN PROTECTED PUPPY PACKAGES: DHLPP Vaccine
(often called a distemper-parvo shot or a 5-way shot) protects your pet against canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza and leptospirosis. This is considered a core vaccine and should be given to every dog, every year. Bordetella Vaccine
(you may know this as the “kennel-cough” shot) protects your pet against strains of bacteria that can cause a nasty cough! In this area, kennel cough is rampant- we see cases every single day! This vaccine, while it can’t prevent every strain, helps to protect your pet against the most common. Rabies Vaccine
protects your pet against, of course, Rabies! In our area, we see a large number of rabies-positive wildlife, and even fairly common cases of rabies-positive household pets.
INCLUDED IN GOLD PACKAGE: Influenza Vaccine
(often called a flu vaccine) protects your pet against canine influenza. Canine Influenza H3N2 broke out in 2015 and has since been reported in over 40 states. Because this is still an emerging disease and dogs in the U.S. have not been exposed to it before, almost all dogs, regardless of breed or age, lack immunity to it and are susceptible to infection if exposed to the active virus. Virtually all dogs exposed to the virus become infected, and nearly 80% show clinical signs of disease. We recommend protecting your pets against this disease now, as it will likely become prevalent in our area soon. If you do not wish to take advantage of our wellness package discounts and want to select services for your pet individually, please write in on the “Other” slot on the other side of this form and specify what vaccines or services you wish for your pet to receive.
